Yehonatan grew up in Israel, where he enjoyed the privilege of living a five-minute walk away from the beach, before moving to California at age 13. Having been drawn to the play of mathematical ideas since a young age, he completed a bachelors degree in math from UC Berkeley with high honors, along with a minor in creative writing. He went on to complete a PhD in math at UCLA, where his research focused on algebraic geometry and topology. He is now a postdoctoral researcher in systems and computational biology in Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

Yehonatan has been tutoring for ten years, in math, computer science and statistics, ranging from high-school courses to undergrad and graduate courses. In addition, he has worked as a teaching assistant for various courses at UCLA such as linear algebra, probability theory and discrete math. He enjoys sharing mathematical insights, breaking down difficult concepts, and leading students to aha! moments.

Outside of math, Yehonatan enjoys surfing, gymnastics and books.
